Florida is home to a number of betting possibilities for both land-based and online gamblers. Legal online betting options are available in Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) and Horse and Greyhound Racing. Traditional and Tribal casinos, ’cruise’ casinos (cruising to ‘nowhere’), jai alai betting and horse racing betting at the tracks dominate the realm of land-based betting in the state of Florida.
Presently, online sports-betting in Florida is not a possibility after a statewide ballot initiative failed in 2021. The Seminole Tribe is currently appealing a court decision that briefly allowed the tribe to host online sports betting on its own app. Yet the legislature is moving very slowly at adopting any online sports betting legislation, so it remains to be seen when Florida finally adds online betting to its gambling options.
Look for the state’s Tribal casinos to lead the push to legalize sports wagering and possibly even online sports betting, like NJ online sports betting sites after a potential initial uptake in their bricks-and-mortar casinos.
